Sindh Caretaker Government Declares December 25 as Public Holiday
The interim administration in Sindh has officially designated December 25th as a public holiday to commemorate Quaid-e-Azam Day and Christmas.
In a notification issued on Monday, the provincial government stated that the initial day of the upcoming week would be a day off for all personnel, including officers, autonomous bodies, semi-autonomous bodies, corporations, and local councils under the administrative jurisdiction of the Sindh government, with the exception of those involved in essential services.
Contrary to local media reports, the caretaker government, in its notification, did not make any declarations regarding December 26 as a public holiday for the Christian community in celebration of Christmas.

Anticipations are high that the federal government and other provincial administrations will also declare a public holiday to mark Quaid-e-Azam Day.
It is noteworthy that December 25 had previously been designated as a non-working day by the Cabinet Division in the holiday list released at the commencement of this year.
